Community Response to an International Crisis: 
A Seminar on Human Trafficking

This seminar is a multidisciplinary educational and awareness event, with speakers representing a variety of perspectives in the fight against human trafficking, including government, health care, and victim services. The target audience includes professionals who may come into contact with victims of human trafficking, such as health care providers, first responders, legal professionals, educators, social service providers, and clergy.

The event is free of charge, but registration is required.

Doors open at 7:00; seminar begins at 8:00 a.m.
